Born in 1959 in Düsseldorf /DE, lives and works in Düsseldorf /DE.
Mischa Kuball, conceptual artist, has been working in the public and institutional sphere since 1977. He uses light as a medium to explore architectural spaces as well as social and political discourses and reflects on a whole variety of aspects from sociocultural structures to architectural interventions as well as emphasizing or reinterpreting their monumental nature and context in architectural history. Public and private space merge into an indistinguishable whole in politically motivated participation projects, providing a platform for communication between the audience, the artist, the work itself and public space.

Since 2007, he has been Professor for public art at the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne, and associate professor for media art at Hochschule für Gestaltung/ZKM, Karlsruhe while also a member of the North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts, Duesseldorf since 2015. In 2016 he was honoured with the German Light Award. In Japan, there is a permanent work in Tokushima.
